Opinions wanted for this build

Heroking18

I have a few questions about this gaming build. Build link: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Heroking18/saved/Z8gXHx

1

I want to OC my CPU in the future and I heard that liquid cooler is the best for it. So I want opinions if I should put the radiator on top for exhaust or in front for intake.

I want to know if they have any difference in air flow because I dont want my parts to heat up in there.

2

If I were to put my radiator on top, what case would you recommend me? The case in the link isn't good enough.

3

I would need a keyboard that's Cherry MX brown for gaming and I've been searching for weeks for a RGB mechanical. It can be non-RGB too if there's aren't any more options

4

My budget is 2000$ and I'm only ordering on Newegg and Amazon so I want to know if there's an AMD version of this build (must be equal to i7-7700K).

It's a little over budget, but it's a great well rounded build can will OC nicely (both GPU and CPU)

It's a pretty good build but my budget won't let me get that :( Cuz I'll be paying extra (tax & such)

drop the 1080 to a cheaper one like 1080 amp edition

Yeah XD since I recently saw that this one is out of stock so I went with EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 SC GAMING ACX

Can you link me to this amp edition?

If it's just a gaming build, all you need is an R5 or an i5. However, if you stream, video edit, render or do anything else CPU intensive, then the R7 is the best way to go.

I'll be streaming in the future.
